Where it Can Take You
Graduate Information & Opportunities
Become a Certified Journeyman Baker
During the Baking and Pastry Arts diploma program, students can challenge the first- and second-year apprenticeship exam during the first year of the program, and the third-year apprenticeship exam during the second year of the program at a cost of $150.00 for each exam. An additional 5,400 hours of employment must be completed to become a certified journeyman baker. See the Baker apprenticeship program page for more information.
Graduates may elect to indenture as apprentices in bakeries or other establishments where baking is a major production factor. Once indentured, and after successful completion of the journeyman exam, the graduate can challenge the Interprovincial Red Seal exam once they are in their third period of apprentice hours.
